Where I live the police may as well not exist. They don't do their job and its perfectly easy to buy, sell, use and smuggle drugs in and around my city. This is mainly due to the new Black Economic Empowerment law, which means that unqualified people that are of the African (black) race, are eligible for jobs whereas the qualified people of any other race are not. So we have a bunch of people running the country who have barely gone to school and this extends all the way to our President. As a result drug abuse is all too common and people are even smoking weed publicly in groups at local sports games at the stadium. I'm not saying this has to do with what race predominantly takes the role of police officers here, nor am I saying ALL the police here are like this, but it is an accurate generalization. Most police can't tell the difference between cannabis and lawn grass. What do your local police do and are they effective at their jobs?
